Alright, well, like many others, Nerfwire was not able to acquire an RTX 3080, and as such we’re not able to give you as much information as we’d like about the card. With the upcoming Ryzen launch still upcoming, and nothing else worth covering on the horizon, we proudly present to you our definitive ranking of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) available for purchase today.
1. APC BE600M1 UPS: $63.29
Available at 600VA but with a product stack leading all the way up to 850VA, the APC is a good all-rounder with 9 plugs, ethernet, and dual USB slots for USB peripherals. The damage for the 600VA variant is $63 dollars, so if you’re out of pointless things to fill up your PC’s PCI slots, this might as well be the next thing you waste your money on. The surge protection on this UPS is backed by a $75,000 connected-equipment policy, an amount of money that you could reasonably save up to if you stopped spending money on things like uninterruptible power supplies.
2. APC SMC1550C 1500VA Smart UPS: $353.97
Alright, we get it: you’re a fucking rockstar, the money is coming in faster than you can spend it, and you’re getting bored spending all of your money on sexy parties and cocaine. You’re looking for a workhorse, you’re looking for the best of the best, and you’re willing to go in both feet first. Well, we’ve got the UPS for you—the behemoth APC SMC1550C will protect your entire setup, might be bigger than your PC, and will run at a $350 dollar price tag that you’re not even going to read before putting in the cart, you beautiful disaster.
3. APC BE600M1 UPS: $63.29
This is the same one we reviewed first, but we’re just adding it again to make you aware of the fact that we know you’re not retaining the names of these products.
4. AmazonBasics Standby UPS 400VA 255W Surge Protector: $41.29
Alright, you’re broke, you’re not going to be changing that any time fast, and you’re looking for something to allow you to save your work on your shitty screenplay before your computer shuts off because the electric company cut your power again. It’s got six outlets for you to plug in your VGA monitors and Dell Optiplex from 2009, and it’ll eventually catch on fire, but you’re renting, so what’s the big deal?
Thanks for reading in on another Nerfwire Build Guide. Next week, if we can’t pick up a 3070 on EBay somewhere, we’ll most likely be reviewing NVMe heatsinks or SSD mounting kits.
